About this book

While researchers with Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) essentially addressed questions from the whole spectrum of cardiology, oncology, and the neurosciences, it was most notably the latter that provided completely new insights into physiological and disturbed human brain function.  In Molecular Imaging in the Clinical Neurosciences, experts in the field provide the reader with up-to-date information on the basic principles of molecular imaging and its major applications in the clinical neurosciences. Beginning with a section offering a comprehensive review of the methodological foundations from physics, chemistry, and mathematics including mathematical modeling, essential for meaningful data analysis, this detailed volume then continues with sections on the major biological principles and neurochemical targets relevant in current neuroimaging research and the major clinical applications from the fields of psychiatry and neurology.  Written for the popular Neuromethods series, this work contains the kind of key description and implementation advice that guarantees successful results.

 

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Molecular Imaging in the Clinical Neurosciences serves as a helpful source of knowledge for both basic and clinical scientists from psychology, psychiatry, neurology, nuclear medicine, nuclear chemistry, and the associated disciplines, all of which makes molecular imaging such a rewarding, interdisciplinary field of work.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Written and edited by leaders in the field, it is a welcome addition to the literature. … This is an outstanding new book covering an important field of physiological brain imaging in neuroscience. Practicing psychiatrists, neurologists, and trainees in these fields who want to keep abreast of the cutting edge of their field should read this informative book.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2012)
